Don’t comment on sensitive matters that affect Manhyia – NPP cautions members

The General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has directed party members particularly in Ashanti to desist from commenting further on the alleged unfortunate comment the party’s regional chairman made against Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II during the party’s parliamentary vetting in Kumasi.

Addressing a news conference in Kumasi today, Justin Koduah Frimpong disclosed, that the party’s top hierarchy is on the grounds to resolve the issue.

He said the party has a tradition, and respect for Nananom “As a party, we have a history, we have a tradition and certainly have an ideology. We know where we came from as a party, from UGCC, NLM, UP, PP, UFP, and NPP.”

According to him, their history has been shaped and supported Asanteman and the good people of the Ashanti Region and as a party, they hold extreme undiluted absolute respect for Asanteman, particularly His Majesty, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, and Nananom.

He therefore used the platform to caution the rank and file of the party to desist from making any commentary via any means of communication.

“Desist from making any sensitive comments regarding Nananom and particularly His Majesty and the party,” he said.

Lawyer Justin Koduah Frimpong further added that the leadership of the party is in touch and is on the grounds as well as knows what to do to make sure the respect for Nananom and the revered King as well as the good people of Ashanti Region remain intact.
